Abstract

• The domain of this study is the reporting of statistical analyses in the otolaryngology literature during 1983 and 1984. Fewer than ten basic statistical procedures accounted for more than 90% of the statistical techniques reported. Implications for authors, journals, and educators are discussed. We offer suggestions for imparting statistical skills that may be helpful in curriculum design, residency training, and continuing medical education planning.
